The IEEE 802.19 working group has been developing standards for coexistence between wireless standards of unlicensed devices. However, with an uprise in connected cars, we’re seeing the need to develop standards focused on wireless automotive coexistence.
The group will focus on: 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequency bands, interference among IEEE 802.11™ devices, interference between IEEE 802.11 and IEEE 802.15™ / Bluetooth devices, and the coexistence of IEEE 802.11 and IEEE 802.15 / Bluetooth with other non-IEEE 802® wireless technologies. They will study the applicability of current standards to address the aforementioned issues and may suggest enhancements that could provide guidance to new standards. The group intends to develop a project authorization request for a new standard on wireless automotive coexistence.
